Cinnamon Roll Pound Cake

Deliciously moist pound cake is swirled with cinnamon sugar, creating a wonderful cinnamon roll flavoured cake.

This pound cake is AMAZING! It is tender and moist and really tastes like a cinnamon roll. I had been wanting to make a pound cake for some time and I'm glad I chose this one to be my first. I did change it a bit, and used only butter in my recipe, rather than a combination of butter and shortening. I also used brown sugar in the cinnamon sugar, because that is what I put in my cinnamon rolls. I split the batter into 4, making 3 cinnamon sugar layers, but when cooking, they all swirled together. Next time I make this, I will do the two layers of cinnamon sugar, as Erin's recipe indicates. 

The kids really enjoyed this pound cake and Queenie insisted I had made it before, because it tasted familiar. After telling her a few times that it tastes like cinnamon rolls, she claimed that that must be why she loved it so much. This pound cake is perfect with a cup of tea in the afternoon, or for dessert.

Cinnamon Roll Pound Cake

adapted from Making Memories with your Kids

3/4 C (1 1/4 sticks) butter, softened

1 1/2 C sugar

3 eggs, room temperature

1 1/2 C flour

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 C milk

1 tsp vanilla

1/4 C brown sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

Cream Cheese Glaze:

2 oz cream cheese, softened

1 C powdered sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1-2 tsp milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and line a large loaf pan with parchment paper, so that some parchment hangs over the long edges of the pan.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar, until light and fluffy. Add in eggs, one at a time, mixing well between each addition. Add vanilla and beat until smooth.

In a small mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt and baking powder. Add dry ingredients to wet, alternately with the milk, starting and ending with flour.

In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.

Pour 1/3 of the batter in the bottom of the prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle with half of the cinnamon sugar mixture. Pour half of the remaining batter into the pan and sprinkle with remaining cinnamon sugar. Pour remaining batter into the pan, smooth the top and bake in preheated oven for 50-60 minutes; until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a few crumbs.

Remove from oven and loosen edges with a knife. Using the excess parchment, carefully remove the cake from the pan. Gently peel back the parchment paper and let cool.

In a small mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese with 1 tsp vanilla. Add in the powdered sugar and beat until smooth. Add 1-2 tsp of milk, if glaze is too thick. You want a thick glaze that flows freely. Pour glaze over the warm cake.

I originally saw this recipe on Pinterest (via Six Sister's Stuff) and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work! 
I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer.

When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right??

This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.

Wondering how to spend Halloween this year, due to the pandemic? Well I have 8 fun and delicious ways to make an at home Halloween, tons of fun!

2020 has been turned upside down. My kids have not seen friends, or the inside of a school since March. While we do have our social bubble, this bubble consists of family and a few select friends. Being someone who could be vulnerable during these crazy times, I have been trying to make every day life as normal as possible. With Halloween fast approaching, I have been thinking of how to make sure my children have a super fun day, but not put our bubble at risk. It would be much easier if my health was 100%, but we will make the best of our Halloween at home.
